Couldn't have been more wrong! Tipped it down as I entered RP. Really struggled to put montane featherlite on in the wind.
Thought I was solo till I saw a light right behind me going up Ballet School hill. He overtook me at the top, was riding a black singlespeed. Anyone here? I stayed with him for a bit, decided to pass along between Pen Ponds and Ham Cross. Went past at a decent pace. He sprints past me a few seconds later, out of the saddle, to hold the lead for all of 20 seconds before going a different direction at the Cross.
Well played! You lost serious points when you free-wheeled over the crossing though.
